I knew I needed to hire an attorney after my disability benefits were denied. I quickly realized that I had no idea what I was up against with the major disability insurance company that was holding my claim. Initially, I was awarded a long term disability claim, but nine months later those benefits were denied. I was frightened and worried as I was still unable to return to work due to my disability, and, as a matter of fact, my symptoms became even worse due to the stress and anxiety of my benefits being denied. I knew I needed representation as I simply could not battle this on my own. I had no knowledge of this process and I needed to protect myself and my family. Being a paralegal for over 20 years, I did my research on disability attorneys, and decided to reach out to Newfield & Frankel. It was by far, the best decision I ever made regarding my disability claim.
From the very first phone call, I knew they were the attorneys for me. I was able to speak to Jason Newfield on that first call. Just talking to him that first time, I already felt comforted by his knowledge of the disability insurance company that I was dealing with, as well as his awareness of the entire disability claim process. He did not “sugar coat” anything. He told it like it is, and made me understand who we were up against and what we can expect. His experience in this field was (and is) clearly unparallel. Needless to say, I knew I needed him on my side, and quickly hired him. Jason wasted no time at all. He had retention papers drown up and signed, and the same day he sent a letter to my disability insurance company, letting them know that he now represents me and that we will appeal their decision to deny my benefits. He was exactly what I needed! I have two children under the age of 7, and I had no time to waste physically, mentally or financially.
Jason and his extremely diligent paralegal, Christina, worked feverishly on my appeal, as they knew I was unable to return to work due to my disability, and how my family and I were financially strained. Throughout the appeal process, Jason was always accessible. He was available whenever I called, and responded to my emails within minutes. Jason prepared an appeal that consisted of hundreds of pages. Along with my medical records stating my disabilities, there was overwhelming research and facts about my condition and its debilitating symptoms, as well as extensive arguments about the findings of the insurance company’s doctors that reviewed my medical records, and as a result, wrongfully denied my benefits. The appeal was beyond impressive. That said, due to their dedication and hard work, my disability benefits were reinstated!
It has been well over a year that I hired Jason Newfield as my attorney and to date he still represents me with my disability claim, as I am still receiving disability benefits. I cannot express the relief my husband and I feel with Jason on our side. His expertise, reliability and overall kindness are remarkable. I am deeply grateful for all Jason and his team has done, and continues to do, for me and my family. My disability has changed my life and it has been a struggle every day, but the comfort I receive by having hired Jason Newfield is invaluable. If you are reading this review and are considering hiring an attorney to represent you with your disability claim, trust me, you need to look no further. Simply call Newfield & Frankel, and I guarantee that after your initial conversation with them, you will feel as I did and know that you will be in great hands!

After a lot of research, I hired Jason to act as my attorney against my insurance company who had unfairly withdrawn my disability payments. I had been impressed by the reviews that I had read about him and the cases he had won previously. I was not disappointed! From the beginning, Jason was highly professional, informative and his attention to every detail gave me the utmost confidence that we could be successful. Mine was a complex case, involving a lot of medical information and data which proved no problem for him. The case ran for almost a year and finally in December we were informed that the insurance company had overturned their decision and would resume payments. I simply cannot recommend Jason or his assistant Christina highly enough, as without them and their expert knowledge of the law and understanding of the complexities case, I could have never won and got back what was legally and fairly owed to me.

I first retained Jason Newfield several years ago, when I was contemplating a potential disability insurance claim. We discussed the issues and my concerns, as there were a number of complicated issues involved. Jason was able to distill these issues and help me navigate through them with relative ease. When it came time to file the claim, the process was smooth, relative to the issues involved. Throughout the process, Jason anticipated how the insurance companies would behave, and was able to develop strategies to effectively combat their approaches. On top of his knowledge base and skillful advocacy, he was extremely responsive and timely to each of my needs, concerns and questions. I have utilized many attorneys over the years on various matters, and his level of competence and confidence was unparalleled. I strongly endorse Jason to anyone who has a disability claim.

Jason is not only a highly knowledgable and experienced litigator in the fields of disability insurance and employee benefits, but he is a caring and sympathetic individual who will tenaciously advocate for the best interests of his clients. For this reason, he is highly respected by his colleagues and peers alike. I give Jason the highest recommendations.
